Independence coach Paul Riley hopes that his team's second of three straight road games goes better than the first. The Independence suffered their first-ever Women's Professional Soccer loss with last week's 2-1 defeat in St. Louis against the Athletica. Now it's on to Chicago for Saturday's 7 p.m. game with the Red Stars. The Independence are 2-1-2 while Chicago is just 1-3-1, although the one win was a 2-0 victory at Boston, a place where the Independence played the Breakers to a 1-1 draw.

MATT CULLEN scored 90 seconds into the game and again in a shootout to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 victory over visiting Chicago on Wednesday, handing the Blackhawks their first loss in seven games this season. Cullen's snap shot in the third round slipped between Corey Crawford's legs, and Patrick Sharp then hit the crossbar for Chicago. The Blackhawks and San Jose were the only teams to start 6-0 this year. The Wild improved to 4-1 at home. Goals by Andrew Shaw and Jonathan Toews early in the first period prompted the Wild to pull goalie Josh Harding for Niklas Backstrom.

Ulf Dahlen didn't wait long to make an impression on his new teammates. Playing in his first game since Chicago acquired him from San Jose over the weekend, Dahlen scored the winning goal at 3:32 of the third period to lead the visiting Blackhawks to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers last night. "If I missed that shot, it would have been embarrassing," Dahlen said of his game-winner. "Tony made the play - I just put it into an empty net. " Dahlen referred to Tony Amonte, who had scored his 31st goal 38 seconds into the period to tie the game.

I'VE JUST returned from an end-of-summer family trip to Chicago, and I feel like I understand Philadelphia better than ever. Travel is a risk for Philadelphians because it raises touchy questions like, "Why not here?" The downside risk is that the question leads to resignation. The upside risk is that it leads to inspiration. Get enough people inspired and "Why not here?" becomes a slogan rather than a question. Recently though, Chicago has been used as an example to avoid.

"Wonder where they got the name Chicago?" My lunch partner with the inquiring mind likes to know such things, particularly since the restaurant in the Pennsauken Country Club looks like a restaurant in a country club and not a bit like one in the Windy City. Seems that the restaurant started out as Chicago at another South Jersey location and then moved with the name intact. These days, following the recent announcement that Chicago has been singled out by a leading wine magazine for its outstanding wine list, business has been so hot that it could remind you of the Chicago fire.

THE 2014 Eagles will play two preseason games before fans get to see them at Lincoln Financial Field. The NFL announced preseason schedules yesterday, minus dates and times. The Eagles will kick off 2014 in Chicago, then play at New England. That game is expected to be accompanied by joint Patriots-Eagles practices, as was the case last season, only those were at NovaCare and these will be in Massachusetts. The third week of the preseason, the Eagles host the Steelers before continuing the tradition like no other, a preseason finale against the Jets contested largely by guys who aren't going to make either roster.

Last week at about this time, the Eagles were sky high after their amazing victory over Washington. But they got their feet on the ground quickly, knowing that they had to prepare for the Super Bowl champion 49ers. This week, they don't exactly have that far to float after losing to the 49ers, but they still have a scintillating matchup to look forward to. That's the way the Eagles' early-season schedule goes - big games week after week, with no time to stop and analyze the meaning of the last performance.

THE YOUNG Detroit Red Wings have made the mighty Chicago Blackhawks look vulnerable, beating them two straight times to gain an advantage in their last playoff matchup as Western Conference rivals. Gustav Nyquist and Drew Miller scored 31 seconds apart midway through the second period and Pavel Datsyuk restored a two-goal lead in the third to help Detroit beat visiting Chicago, 3-1, last night and take a 2-1 lead in the second-round series. As good as the Red Wings have looked - scoring six straight goals to earn momentum in the series - their hard-driving coach isn't ready to celebrate.

"Whin ye see two men set in opposite corners while one mutters 'thraiter' an' th' other hisses 'miscreent,' ye can bet they're two Dimmycratic leaders tryin' to reunite th' party. " So spake the barkeep philosopher Mr. Dooley, the long ago creation of that great Chicago humorist, Finley Peter Dunne. In his pithy way, Mr. Dooley was saying the same thing as the German philosopher Hegel, who held that a political party can be said truly to exist only when it is divided against itself.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - It's impossible not to draw the parallels. When the Taney Dragons take the field Thursday night at 8:05 in an elimination game of the Little League World Series on ESPN, they will see an opponent in Jackie Robinson West Little League who looks a lot like themselves. Just as Philadelphia has pulled together to support Center City-based Taney, the city of Chicago has rallied around its Jackie Robinson West Little League. But the similarities go beyond their inner-city roots.

CHICAGO - Joel Embiid never went through the rigors of the NBA Draft Combine. After he declared he was going to the NBA after one season at the University of Kansas, he skipped the annual event in Chicago. He's seeing what it's all about now, though. In an unprecedented move, the 76ers' big man came with Brett Brown and general manager Sam Hinkie to Chicago and is seeing how the the organization works throughout the week. Wednesday, he sat in on about seven interviews with prospective future teammates; yesterday he was at the gym watching workouts and also sat in on some more interviews.

In the latest expansion move by a Philadelphia-based law firm, Cozen O'Connor said Thursday that it would merge with a 60-lawyer firm in Chicago, greatly expanding its presence there, and deepening its labor and employment and white-collar defense practices, along with other legal areas. The merger, effective June 1, will bring the total number of lawyers at Cozen to 635, said the firm's CEO, Michael Heller. "This gives us a much broader full-service office in Chicago, and allows us to do this with an extremely accomplished group of lawyers with national practices," Heller said of the merger with Meckler Bulger Tilson.

THE ENCHANTING RUN that Philadelphia's Taney Dragons and ace pitcher Mo'ne Davis went through last summer at the Little League World Series in Williamsport may have ended too soon. The Chicago-based Jackie Robinson West club, the first all-black squad to win the United States Little League Championship, was stripped of its title by Little League International yesterday after it was determined the team had falsified boundaries to field ineligible players. Little League International also said that after the boundaries had been changed, JRW officials went to surrounding leagues in Illinois to claim players to build a superior team.

Taney wasn't robbed. Las Vegas wasn't robbed. New Albany, Ind.; West Dundee, Ill.; Lansing, Ill.; Chicago Rosemoor; and all the other teams beaten by Jackie Robinson West on the way to the U.S. championship of Little League Baseball weren't robbed. Jackie Robinson West was robbed. The kids who played for that team were robbed on Wednesday when their championship was stripped, and what they were robbed of was their childhood. Through no fault of their own, they were made to feel part of something wrong instead of something wonderful, and they learned, perhaps for the first time, that there is little in this world that can't be ruined by adults trying to make it better.

Little League International officials met Tuesday to discuss a recent investigation into Chicago's national championship team amid accusations of ineligible players. Jackie Robinson West, which eliminated Philadelphia's Taney Dragons last summer, may have added top players from neighboring suburban leagues, according to an ESPN report. Little League International's inquiry started late last year. It is unclear whether the Chicago team could be stripped of its title. The Tuesday meeting took place several weeks after the organization announced it had found no violations of residency rules but would reopen its investigation if new evidence was presented.

JIM CURTIN likes to joke about the fact that seemingly every week a family member or a Union fan mentions in passing, "Oh, this week's a big one" in regards to the upcoming game. Duh. "The good thing is, I know I've said it 100 times, but we've been in must-win kind of games this whole stretch," Curtin, the Union's interim manager since June, said this week. "The past 16, 17 games have all felt like that. "Our guys know that," he added. "They know the moment. " Though Curtin wouldn't go as far as to label it "a must win," tonight's home game against the Chicago Fire could be viewed as just that for a club fighting for its postseason life.

Most flights operated on time with some minor delays Monday at Philadelphia International Airport, despite delays and cancellations nationwide over the weekend after a Federal Aviation Administration telecommunications contractor allegedly burned a Chicago-area radar center in an apparent suicide attempt Friday. Philadelphia International has 27 scheduled departures to, and 27 scheduled arrivals from, Chicago's O'Hare and Midway Airports, said spokesman Mark Pesce. "According to the airlines, most flights are operating on time, with some minor delays," Pesce said.

What's with the accounting industry? Every company needs outside bean-counters to audit the books, trim taxes, and help make a case for tough decisions. But you need a chart to keep track of them all, the way local firms have joined, split, and been replaced. Ten years ago, Robert Ciaruffoli moved his office and his home to Society Hill from northeast Pennsylvania with the goal of building the firm now known as ParenteBeard L.L.C. into a formidable player, from New York to Washington.

The largest Philadelphia-based accounting firm, ParenteBeard L.L.C., will join Chicago-based Baker Tilly Virchow Krause L.L.P., the two firms said in a statement Wednesday. The combined firm will be called Baker Tilly Virchow Krause L.L.P. The ParenteBeard name will disappear, the combined firm will be headquartered in Chicago, and Baker Tilly leadership will remain in place. But, Baker Tilly spokesman David Pendery insisted, the transaction was a merger and not an acquisition by the larger Baker Tilly.
